Getting over Strep Throat

Patient : About 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Strep. I was put onto Keflex and that wasn't helping after a week so I was put onto Augmentin. After 5 days of Augmentin, I was still not better so the doctor did another swab and it was still positive. He said to stay on the medicine for 2 more days and see how I am. Came back 2 days later and I was not better and I still had strep. Doctor put me on azithromycin (z pack) and he did blood work for mono which came out negative.I started that this past wednesday and I am still feeling very very tired. i can't keep my eys opened and I feel like I want to sleep all day. No matter how much I sleep I am still so tired. The doctor said that it could be that I am getting over the strep or it may be a virus. Do you think the tiredness is from being on 2 antibiotics at the same time? Should I go back to the doctor and see if the strep is gone? I never felt this tired before. I lost about 7 pounds within 2 weeks.
